Do you need some more salt for the lemon juice?
Salt? Where is the ice?
Don't have ice!
No ice? Then what the hell is written on this board? It is "cool drinks"! Don't you know what it means?
Okay, I'll go to school again and shall learn to read! If you don't need, don't drink it and don't pay!
To Rishi Ashokan - We don't need this scoundrel's juice. let's go somewhere else.
To Shopkeeper, after paying - Drink it yourself!

This is should be in fact the best movie by Padmarajan, ever. thats my opinion. It is a bold story of love versus lust..love doesn't win. lust doesn't loose the game also. The game of life is practically won by love, as lust takes a back door exit. Clara the prostitute unlike many others, enters her profession not because of her life problems, but because she wants to. Protagonist, Jayakrishnan played by Mohanlal is drawn quite masterfully. He is bold and daring, and in his town, the most popular. In his village, he is a humble landlord and a farmer, who is conservative.
Both faces of the character are safe with Mohan Lal. He again displays his genius as he eases through the role. The directors brilliance is shown in so many shots like the song sequences, and when he proposes Clara.
This will be boldest movies ever in Malayalam Cinema. I am sure none of the Directors of this age wouldn't dare to make a movie like this. And to add, this is different from Padmarajans Novel "Udakappola", though the characters are the same in both the movies and the Novel.
